New acquisition gives SSI Schaefer a lift


Worldwide leading logistics provider SSI Schaefer has acquired Danish company Handler A/S, rounding out their product portfolio with the important storage lift segment.

Handler A/S occupies a strong market position in the storage lift segment, particularly in the Scandinavian region.

The integration of Handler A/S ensures that SSI Schaefer completes its product chain as a full-service provider for intralogistics globally and allows the company to introduce the LogiMat storage lift into the product line.

The LogiMat storage lift is considered future-oriented and extremely operator-friendly. It integrates seamlessly into the SSI Schaefer product range Ergonomics@Work.

Stepless, height-adjustable access openings and incline devices on the trays for the ergonomically correct removal of goods complete the equipment package.

Compared to a common static storage solution, the storage lift only requires 1/10 of the storage space. The clever SPS control can be supplemented by the in-house software package Wamas and/or integrated seamlessly into the existing inventory management system. Various options for an increase of efficiency and maximum optimisation of the picking speed complete the package.

SSI Schaefer will showcase the LogiMat storage lift for the first time at CeMat in Hannover, Germany in May this year.
